NEW DELHI: On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his visiting Nepal counterpart Sher Bahadur Deuba met at the Hyderabad House in New Delhi for delegation-level talks.  They are expected to officially inaugurate the Kurtha-Jayanagar railway line.

Arindam Bagchi, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of External Affairs said, the two leaders will "review the progress in our collaboration and discuss measures to strengthen the India-Nepal cooperation agenda." The official said Modi and Deuba were "working together to raise India-Nepal ties to greater heights" ahead of the summit.

Deuba began his second day of travel by paying his respects at Rajghat. Deuba visited the BJP headquarters shortly after his arrival on Friday evening, where he met party chairman J.P. Nadda.

Later in the day, he met with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, who stated that the Nepali leader's visit "would further deepen our close neighbourly ties." 

This is Deuba's first journey outside of the country since taking office in July of last year. He is accompanied by his wife, Arzu Rana Deuba, and a 50-member team from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Water Resources, Health and Population, Agriculture, and Physical Planning.
